We hope you enjoyed Zucchini Week last week.  If you didn’t get a chance to read those posts, go check them out here.  We are going to start this week off with a bang!  We really hope you don’t have to wait until the weekend to try this drink.  We already loved Prosecco and with the addition of Violette Liqueur its divine!  Here is what you need:

4 oz Prosecco

1/2 oz Creme de Violette

Lavender sugar

LemonModernDrinks-18

With the lemon, wet the edge of the glass.  Gently roll the wet edge in the lavender sugar.  Careful not to get inside the glass.  Add 1/2 oz of Creme de Violette and top with Prosecco.How easy was that?!  You can use unflavored sugar if you can’t find lavender sugar.  You don’t want to use regular table sugar with this.  Look for fine sugar, not powdered, just fine grain sugar.  Prosecco is sweeter than Champagne but Champagne would work as well.  We love Cupcake Vineyards Prosecco.

Thank you for join us again!  We would love to connect with you here.  So leave us a comment or connect with us on Facebook.  Happy Monday!

  1. I’ve been hearing about Creme de Violette and can’t wait to try it with your recipe. What’s the flavor component of this spirit?
    It is made with a neutral spirit base. Great question!!! Thank you Debbie.
